Google’s been on a roll with the different commercials, billboards, and advertisements as we barrel towards the unknown release date of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. But thanks to @ThisIsTechToday, it’s likely that we have our first “real world” hands-on with the larger Pixel 6 Pro.
The video itself only lasts about eight second, but gives us a look at the phone from all angles. The display is turned on, but only shows the start-up screen saying “Welcome to your Pixel”, along with the ability to change the language, and presumably toggle any “Assistive option”. Then, we have the run of the mill Emergency Call button, along with the Get Started button in the bottom right corner.
I think this may be the first hands on video leak of a Google Pixel 6 Pro.
FYI: The logo would indicate that this is likely an early production test unit, so that means there may be some differences between what you see here and the actual production device. #teampixel pic.twitter.com/4QSvdktqA7

From there, the individual begins turning the phone around, showing off how the screen melts into the frame. The Power and Volume buttons are on the right side of the frame, before we get a look at the back of the phone.
This is where people might be put off and think that the phone might be a fake, just because of the logo. However, this is the same logo that Google has used for pre-production devices in the past, meaning that this likely falls under that category.
There’s really nothing else shown off in the 8-second video, other than the fact that someone has gotten their hands on a pre-production unit. Google has already started showing off the devices in person, if you happen to be around the New York City area. However, those units are just window displays, and you can’t actually interact with them. But that hasn’t stopped people from stopping by just to get a glimpse at what Google has in store for us.
Just yesterday, we saw that the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro passed through FCC, confirming some of the connectivity implementations that are expected. This includes things like Wi-Fi 6E across both devices, support for the most popular and most-used 5G bands here in the States, and UWB support for the Pixel 6 Pro.
We don’t know how much longer Google is going to make us wait, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed that it’s not going to be too much longer.
